Gabions in a Prime Tourist Site.
Many people from around the world visit the Royal Castle of Balmoral and the Highland Games at Braemar. To get there they often drive up the famous pass in Glen Shee called The Devils Elbow. Sadly on the roadside if they look at the scenery carefully they may notice these gabions which were constructed several years ago when the road was rebuilt. This is a poor example for Scottish Tourism in an area of wonderful Granite mountains.
